    1926 - 2020

    LATTY – Wayne August Stoller, 94, of Latty, died Monday Nov. 2 in Sylvania where he was residing temporarily after a brief illness. Prior, he had been a resident of the Country Inn of Latty since 2014.

    He was born Oct. 2, 1926 to Irvin and Marie (Laukhuf) Stoller of Latty. On Dec. 29, 1946 he married Dorothy Furrer of Wolcott, Indiana. To this union were born three sons: Wendell, Lonnie and Dwight, and a daughter Karen.

    Survivors include a brother Gale (Janet) of Temperence, Mich., sons Wendell (Cindy) of Cookeville, Tenn. and Dwight (Lori) of Latty, 15 grandchildren, 39 great-granchildren and four great-great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister Christine and brother Darl, his beloved wife Dorothy, son Lonnie (Shirley) and daughter Karen (Ron).

    He repented of his sins and was baptized into the death of the Lord Jesus in the Latty Apostolic Christian Church in November 1947 where he remained a faithful member until his death.

    An avid beekeeper, he formed W. Stoller’s Honey, Inc. with the help of his wife Dorothy in 1952. Eventually, three of their children also joined the family business. He faithfully tended his bees for years and was an example of hard-work. He retired in 2009 at the age of 83.

    In his younger years, he served as a Sunday school teacher in the Latty Apostolic Christian church, as mayor of Latty and was an active member of the Gideons International.

    Anyone who knew Wayne could remember his ability to talk to anyone, and his sense of humor.

    Due to COVID, the family held a private funeral service at the Latty Apostolic Christian Church with burial following in the church cemetery on Saturday, Nov. 7.

    Memorials may be made to Gideons, Paulding Senior Center, Country Inn or Apostolic Christian Alms Fund.

    Online condolences may be sent to

    Den Herder Funeral Home, Paulding, handled arrangements.
